A body­build­ing jour­ney By Hay­ley Evans

Ad­dic­tion and d de­ter­mi­na­tion n are two at­tributes prov­ing ov­ing to be a win­ning for­mula ula for 24-year-old HAY­LEY EVANS. Here she re­counts her steps to win­ning on n the body­build­ing g stage.

Born in the Waikato, I moved up to Auck­land when I turned 18 for a job op­por­tu­nity, ty, work­ing for a great com­pany y and brand of cos­met­ics.

I have al­ways been an ac­tive c tive per­son and love liv­ing a healthy life style and keep­ing fit and healthy.

My body­build­ing jour­ney y started star ted in July last year when I de­cided ded I wanted to achieve a per­sonal al goal of get­ting my body in the best est shape pos­si­ble to be able to o com­pete in the Bikini sec­tion for the New Zealand In­ter­na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of Body Build­ing (NZIFBB) Waikato champs in Septem­ber.

“The feel­ing you get when you are up on stage and feel­ing

amaz­ing is in­de­scrib­able and to­tally ad­dic­tive!”

Luck­ily Luck I knew the right per­son to ap­proach to get all of the right r in­for­ma­tion and guid­ance, a per­sonal friend Jake Cam­pus, based in Flex Fit­ness Gym Hamil­ton.

Within W a few days of email­ing Jake what I was eat­ing, eatin my weight and height he had sent me though a ac com­plete meal plan of what I could eat and a work­out w sched­ule to fol­low. Long story short I fol­lowed fo this plan 100 per cent and soaked up all the ad­vice and knowl­edge I could in the eight weeks.

My body had com­pletely trans­formed in this time from what I thought was fit and toned, to a whole new level of feel­ing this way. I was so pleased and happy that I had reached by goal that just turn­ing up to the show and touch­ing the stage was enough for me.

But since I had worked so hard I de­cided that I may as well step on the stage and show of my hard work. I reached com­pe­ti­tion date on 21st Septem­ber S and re­luc­tantly stepped on stage – I was a ner­vous wreck and had no idea what to t ex­pect. I got up there and rocked the poses as much as I could and it felt like such an achieve­ment.

Sur­pris­ingly I placed first in this com­pe­ti­tion and was in to­tal shock! The feel­ing you get when you are up on stage and feel­ing amaz­ing is in­de­scrib­able and to­tally ad­dic­tive! This is what star ted my new ad­dic­tion and de­ter­mi­na­tion to keep com­pet­ing in this fan­tas­tic Sport.

Since then I com­peted in the Auck­land Na­tion­als on Septem­ber 27th and North­ern Champs Cham in Oc­to­ber – I placed first in Bikini sec­tion Tall and Won over­all.

This year I have stepped up my train­ing, see­ing Jake Ja once a month in Hamil­ton to mon­i­tor my body b fat and mus­cle mass as I added mus­cle, then prepped for the IFBB Auck­land Pro / Am­a­teur Bikini show March 16th - I placed third in a tough class of girls.

Now I am work­ing on adding more mus­cle to my gluts and step­ping on stage for the IFBB Na­tion­als in Oc­to­ber this year, which I am cur­rently work­ing hard for with my ul­ti­mate goal of get­ting my IFBB Bikini Pro card.

I can­not wait for all of the new chal­lenges ahead and look for­ward to once again step­ping on stage in Oc­to­ber.

Hay­ley placed first in her first body­buld­ing com­pe­ti­tion

and was in to­tal shock!”

Hay­ley is now work­ing on adding more mus­cle to her gluts and step­ping on stage for the IFBB Na­tion­als in Oc­to­ber.
